Donald Z (us) wrote: I finally saw this movie. And yeah, it was really good. Reminded me of an older, or an indie, or a pulp fiction-y type of movie, in some ways. Things reminded me of Ghost World, here or there. But yeah, whatever you may think, whatever I say, you won't go wrong sitting down and actually watching this movie through. It's nice to think when a movie's done, y'know?

Marko H (br) wrote: A wonderful and tragic tribute to Griffiths and the rest of the silent film era. Kaurismaki is also sure to include cheeky references to film history (ex. the Bunuel poster on the wall). The subject matter is appropriate to the genre, as well as many of the technical aspects (ex. acting, lighting, etc.).

Naoya K (us) wrote: Truly admirable film. Probably shorter than even the half of the running time of Avatar, but contents are million times bigger. Ideal form of cinema entertainment for me. Simple, clear, humorous, full of lessons about life (in a good way), cheerful, and you can see the world in a slightly different way after watching it.

Stephen C (it) wrote: Their is boiled and their is hard boiled and this film is just about as hard boiled as they come ,with lean and mean direction and some outstanding tough guy performances.Robert Duvall plays Earl Macklin a small time bankrobber who is out for revenge when he learns his brother has been rubbed out by the Outfit .With the aid of his partner Cody (Joe Don Baker excellent) he smashes and slugs his way towards the top man played by Robert Ryan in his last screen roleDuring the course of the film direc tor John Flynn fills his film full of tough noir character parts including Jane Greer from Out of the past, Richard Jackel from the Dirty Dozen and Timothy Carey ,Marie Windsor and Elisha Cook Jr from Kubricks the Killing.This casting and some thick ear violence give the film a real hardboiled edge ,and its no coincidence that the film is based on a book by the same author as Point Blank Lee Marvins 1967 noir classic.Like that film the story never lets up as Macklin dishes up his own brand of justice.A mid 70s noir masterpiece this film relly does deliver the goods.

John M (gb) wrote: The Big Gundown is one of the best non-Leone spaghetti westerns. You got Lee Van Cleef, the same year as Leone's The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly; an awesome Ennio Morricone score (Tarantino borrowed much of it for Inglourious Basterds, and you can see why); Tomas Milian as a Mexican bandito who prefers knives to guns (although he's certainly not above using guns); and great direction from Sergio Sollima. The plot: Lee Van Cleef is Corbett, a legendary bounty hunter. Corbett visits a local powerbroker named Brokston, who gets him to hunt for a Mexican bandito named Cuchilo (Milan), who raped and killed a 12 year old girl (or did he?...). Lee Van Cleef plays a similar role to Col. Mortimer in Leone's For a Few Dollars More, and he's still cool as hell. Milan is great as the Mexican bandit who, like Eli Wallach's Tuco from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, gradually reveals himself to be a more intelligent and complex human being than we initially took him for. The film is well paced with plenty of memorable scenes and great action, and Cuchilo's propensity for knife throwing leads to one of the most preposterous- and, therefor, most awesome- mano-a-mano showdowns in a western. And with the details surrounding the rape and murder in question revealed, the person he's facing off against, and the epic Ennio Morricone score swelling, it's extremely satisfying.
